We're going to try to venture out this morning and spend some small portion of our Christmas money on storage. My hope is to put all the nice things the children got for Christmas into boxes that are very difficult for them to open so they can never mess up the house. Just kidding, sort of. We do seriously have to weed through what they already have to make way for all the new stuff. So that's my project for the week.
And I also intend a serious materials making day. I actually want to paint a lot of little boxes for my Sunday School kids for Epiphany, with a verse or something inside. We'll see how it goes.
And I'm also settling on my new years resolutions. I think I've settled on three that are achievable.
1. I'm going to loose the weight of 2 babies plus.
2. I'm going to pray and read the bible 5 days out of 7 (of course, 7 would be better, but if I make it to 5, then I can aim for 7)
3. I'm going to read 6 books. And I welcome suggestions on the books.
And now I'm going to go stand at the window and watch Matt and E and A shovel snow and thank God for men and children.
